‘Award wins show you which companies are rising to the top of their field.’ — Jack Koziol

Now that we’re past the GRAMMYs, the Oscars and the Golden Globe awards, we can forget all that red carpet shenanigans and focus on matters of universal importance. 

It’s the 2020 cybersecurity award season!

No, hackers and bad guys don’t receive awards — we think a prison sentence is more apropos. But the cybersecurity industry takes this time to acknowledge the thought leaders, innovative companies and educators making a difference in the fight against cybercrime.

Not to brag,(OK, I’m bragging) but Infosec is really raking in the trophy hardware this year. You’ll excuse us for tooting our own horn. Sittin’ tall in the saddle. Busting our buttons.

I talked to Infosec CEO Jack Koziol yesterday and he shared his viewpoint on awards.

“The real benefit of awards is the message they send to current and future customers. Awards serve as a differentiator,” Jack said. “If you watch over time, awards show you who is rising to the top. For Infosec’s loyal current customers, it’s also affirmation they are partnering with an industry leader. For organizations and security pros evaluating and selecting a cybersecurity educator, awards signal Infosec should be in your decision set.”

With that longish preamble, let’s get to the award list roundup.

Forrester Research, Inc. recently named Infosec a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Security Awareness and Training Solutions, Q1 2020 report. Forrester analysts said, “Infosec combines customer delight with an evolving modern solution. The Infosec IQ platform covers a broad range of security topics and receives frequent updates with new content.”

In January, the Business Intelligence Group named Infosec Skills a 2020 BIG Innovation Award winner alongside 100 other global companies. We are pretty geeked up Infosec Skills was picked among thousands of companies from around the world, but most happy our newest education platform is recognized as innovative and unique and will be a career-changer for IT and security pros.
